1. Sweetheart Month at the Titanic Museum

Thanks to the blockbuster movie directed by James Cameron, the Titanic has become a symbol of eternal love. During the month of February, the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge celebrates romance with Sweetheart Month. This special celebration sheds a light on some of the beautiful real-life love stories that took place on the Titanic.

The museum’s crew is also offering their services to help visitors celebrate their love. The Titanic Museum’s breathtaking Grand Staircase is available for marriage proposals, wedding ceremonies, and vow renewals. The ship’s Captain Smith will even officiate!

February is the last month to see Pigeon Forge’s beautiful Winterfest lights! During the winter season, our Smoky Mountain city is decked out with over 5 million LED lights that are arranged in a variety of gorgeous displays. Some of the most popular Winterfest displays include the flag being raised at Iwo Jima, the Liberty Bell, and nursery rhyme characters like Humpty Dumpty, Mother Goose, the Cat and the Fiddle, and the giant clock from Hickory Dickory Dock. The Winterfest celebration typically lasts until mid-February.

3. Valentine’s Day in a Pigeon Forge Cabin

What could be more romantic than celebrating Valentine’s Day at a cabin in the mountains? The Pigeon Forge area is full of charming one bedroom cabin rentals with everything you need for an unforgettable escape with the one you love. Soak the evening away in your private Jacuzzi tub, or cuddle together in front of the fireplace. Watching the sun set behind the Smokies while sitting on your deck with your sweetheart by your side is a truly magical experience. If you miss Valentine’s Day, don’t worry — there’s never a bad time for a romantic getaway! To see a convenient list of the best properties in the area, check out all of our Pigeon Forge cabins.
